Medical Student Clerkships

Our Graduate Medical Education Program has a strong commitment to medical student teaching. Eisenhower Medical Center routinely hosts medical students from the University of California, San Diego, the University of California, Riverside, University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine and Loma Linda University School of Medicine where we have affiliation agreements established.

Third and Fourth Year medical students rotate each month through Eisenhower clerkships. We welcome fourth year medical students for their medicine sub-internship rotations.

The clerkship rotations that are currently available are:


The first half day of the rotation is an orientation day. Medical students are given a thorough orientation to Eisenhower Medical Center, EHR access, drug/urine test, discuss the rotation schedule, and suggested reading topics are given.


Turnkey furnished two-bedroom condominiums are provided free of charge for medical students conducting their clerkships while at Eisenhower Medical Center. These condominiums are located within private, guard-gated country clubs.


Our clerkships are all located in the Coachella Valley. Depending upon the clerkship, some travel is required daily. Clerkships that are conducted on the EMC campus are Cardiology, Hospitalist Medicine, and Medical Informatics. The clerkships that enjoy traveling from EMC clinics, underserved clinics, or skilled nursing facilities are Family Medicine, Geriatric Medicine, and HIV Primary Care Medicine.
